Waiting on Wednesday (3)

WoW is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

So this book is about two daughters of a serial killer. How badazz is that?! And the cover is kind of creepy. You know that "7 days" video in the movie The Ring that with the upside down spinny chair and the fly and the hair-brushing mirror woman that caused nightmares for a week? It's disturbing, like that.

And I feel like a massive freak, because prior to reading the synopsis of this book, the title Slice of Cherry made me hungry. I looked at the cover with the red & the teacups and thought to myself, "oh, looks like the tea drinkers must've dripped some cherry from the pie/cheesecake/tartlet they were eating. How clumsy of them! Mmm.. that sounds delicious!"

When, in fact, it's likely blood. From a person, not a pastry. Does that make me a vampire?

Anyway, enough rambling. I want this book something fierce. I love the cover and the childlike scribbled title. And READ THIS GOODREADS SYNOPSIS. This book is obviously bound to be made of the utmost amount of win:

Happiness is a bloody knife.

Kit and Fancy Cordelle are sisters of the best kind: best friends, best confidantes, and best accomplices. The daughters of the infamous Bonesaw Killer, Kit and Fancy are used to feeling like outsiders, and that’s just the way they like it. But in Portero, where the weird and wild run rampant, the Cordelle sisters are hardly the oddest or most dangerous creatures around.

It’s no surprise when Kit and Fancy start to give in to their deepest desire—the desire to kill. What starts as a fascination with slicing open and stitching up quickly spirals into a gratifying murder spree. Of course, the sisters aren’t killing just anyone, only the people who truly deserve it. But the girls have learned from the mistakes of their father, and know that a shred of evidence could get them caught. So when Fancy stumbles upon a mysterious and invisible doorway to another world, she opens a door to endless possibilities....


  1. Hmmm...this definitely sounds interesting! I may have to read it out of sheer curiousity. I don't think I've ever read a book with the same storyline, have you? And yes, you may just very well be a vampire :)

  2. I can't wait for this book either! Did you read her other book, Bleeding Violet? It's kind of weird, but it's really good! At least I though so.

  3. That cover is beyond creeptastic.

  4. I've got an ARC on it's way of this. Apparently it will make you need to sleep with lights on for a few days, it is that creepy!

  5. Jac, I haven't!! But I've heard that it's very weird.

    IR, you're so incredibly lucky!! I cannot wait to get my hands on this freaking book. And I've heard the same thing about the "sleeping with the lights on" thing :) right up my alley!
